I bet you got your exercise shoveling snow . I never seen one snow flake this year which is unusual and hopefully a reoccurring theme.


I used 450KWH less electricity this December and January then I did for the same months the previous year.

Strangely, it only snowed for a couple of hours this morning...
And, we have seen the sun a few times today!! (It's up to 18F)

We have seen trillions of extra snow flakes this winter..
Don't have space for any more of them.. But more are on the way..

A blonde driving a car became lost in a snowstorm.
She didn't panic however, because she remembered what her dad had once told her.

"If you ever get stuck in a snowstorm, just wait for a snow plow to come by and follow it." Sure enough, pretty soon a snow plow came by, and she started to follow it.

She followed the plow for about forty-five minutes. Finally the driver of the truck got out and asked her what she was doing.
She explained that her dad had told her if she ever got stuck in a snow storm, to follow a plow.

The driver nodded and said, "Well, I'm done with the parking lot now.




I thought you could use some humor about now !

Thanks.. I just heard a new one..
Police Log: 2-10-15 - Itemlive.com: Police Log

Suspicious Activity

A Turner Road resident reported at 10:40 p.m. Sunday that a vehicle was parked in his driveway and wondered if anyone had called to say that they needed to use his driveway for some emergency. Dispatch said nobody had made the request but could run the car’s plate to find its owner, but caller said he couldn’t get outside to see the plate but would call back if it was still there later. At 12:32 a.m. Monday, dispatch reported “phantom car turned out to be a snowbank.”


I understand how this happened.. Since I have snow drifts the size of cars on the roof of my house..

I told my wife, "If you hear a loud cracking noise, get out of the den quick"..

For me in frozen Canada this weeks forecast is a high of 52*F with a night time low of 37*F

We have not had ice on the road since early December , I am loving it as I walk the Dog about 5km a day.


Hope your cold front leaves soon , nasty weather your having.

The new electric blanket has been working great.. Warm as toast,

Have you tried a alternative medicine , it could very well improve your quality of life.

Medical Cannabis be the name making you feel better is its game. Some seriously ill people get a new lease on life with it.

Now that I no longer have to take regular polygraph tests,
and no longer have that kind of job.. LOL!

Have to put that on my Bucket list.. For now, I'll stick with the regular old Tylenol..

I was just kidding about the Massachusetts Voters.. Sometimes, they are an okay bunch..

Whereas our supreme court just stated that laws against Physician Assisted Suicide are unconstitutional. The govt must change the law within 1 year to allow for it.
